Jay Ratchet was a particularly mature hero who specialized as a spy. He was an elite member of the Delta 4 Hero team.
Like all other Heroes, Jay Ratchet came into being in the Assembly Tower in Makuhero City. Following his activation he was integrated into the Delta 4 hero team, where he would receive training from the Elite members of the group. Some time after this, however, Patrick Gust was also integrated into the team. By this stage, Ratchet was already a fairly experienced rookie.
Pursuit of Bonecrusher
Approximately three years ago, the Hero Factory received a false distress call from the Maldovarium bar, claiming that the sender was being held hostage by a villain named Bonecrusher. Consequently, a number of hero teams were dispatched to the bar, Ratchet being one of the agents on this mission.
Ratchet left his team's Dropship and was partnered with Fredrick Nova for the mission. The two heroes then proceeded to raid the Maldovarium with their team mates.
However, upon finding Scratch - the owner of the facility - the two heroes were ambushed by Bonecrusher, who had used the distress call to allow him to escape. The Aurosian managed to critically injure Fredrick Nova and landed a blow to Ratchet's left arm, severely damaging it, before making an escape.
However, despite Ratchet's injury and the palatalization of his team mate, Ratchet was able to think tactically and formulate a plan, adopting one of Clank's most important teachings; the rule that "no hero gets left behind." Using the morals that he had been taught, Ratchet was able to carry his injured team mate to safety and to capture the notorious black marketer known as Scratch. Because of this, Ratchet was rewarded for his bravery with an upgrade to Elite Hero status, which he specifically thanked Clank for helping him to earn. the rookie managed to carry Nova to safety and to successfully capture Scratch.
Ratchet was credited for his brave actions on this mission in spite of Bonecrusher's escape.
Elite Hero Status
Due to his courage displayed during the Maldovarium operation, Ratchet was rewarded with an upgrade to Elite Hero status, which he specifically thanked Clank for helping him to earn.
However, from this point onward, the young hero began to seek his own independent path. Partially aware of the limitations of the Hero Factory, Ratchet became involved with both his original Delta 4 Team as well as the Delta 3 Team.
